You always need compost for your garden---normally it can only be made 
in sufficient volume by shredding roadside leaves or chipping tree 
limbs---either from chemically untreated areas.  You also need several 
grinding screens and a bar-discharge chute to produce the size of 
chipped or ground material you want.  You need a 1/4" screen for potting 
soil, and like any compost will have to mix in nitrogen material like 
green grass with carbonaceous material (small-diameter dry organic 
material) in a one-to-thirty ratio to make the composting bacteria 
happy.  Keep the compost pile fairly wet and turn it often. A nine 
horsepower engine is adequate.  I had a WW Grinder once, and a Kemp 
---neither would chip limbs, only grind stuff like  wet, stringy stalks 
from my banana grove and regrind wood chips.  I threw away the five 
horsepower  engine on the WW, put on a eight hosepower which worked 
well, and suffered a world-wide wait for a five horsepower  Kemp to 
regrind  chips I got from  a road crew.

Best ones currently available are MacKissics---mercilessly expensive at 
about $1800 including freight, plus expensive screen options.  E-bay 
might provide some cost relief.  They aren't common enough to find in 
estate auctions, at least cities the size of Roanoke.  I'd go for a nine 
hp. engine with a cast-iron cylinder liner.

Some enlightening user comments---all leading to the conclusion 
MacKissic is the only realistic choice, anything else is a waste of time 
and money.  Chippers, Part II
